KASOAG LAKE UPDATES
Letter From The President
Some clarifications from our 5/12/18 meeting.
Folks I wish I had been able to attend our meeting on the 12th but still on the mend.
Mary had told me about some questions that have come up and I will be able to get some answers out later this week depending on when people get back to me.
I know there were questions about hydro-raking the center of the creek and whether that would make sense due to it filling back in. I have been approached by people who live on the creek prior to this and they have expressed an interest paying to have their shorelines done in combination with the center. This would give us a much better outcome and allow us to remove more of the bio-mass which as we all know is a tremendous fertilizer unfortunately.
So that would be a much better approach than just doing the center and I hope we can make it happen.
I again want to thank the Board and George Stowers for running the meeting yesterday and I will be at the June meeting. Many thanks to Helen Bolen for taking over the 50/50 ticket sales!
If you have specific questions please feel free to call me at 315-283-3476 or email me at Oswegatchie1@gmail.com.

We Have A Winner
The winner of this years Ice Out Contest is Jim Darrh. The Submarine broke free on April 9, 2018 at 3:03:34. Jim won with a guess of April 9, 2018 at 9:45 AM. The total collected for the 50/50 was $830.00, Jim's take was $415.00.
Thank you for everyone who participated in this years Ice Out Contest to save our Lake. Keep watching for our next Ice Out Contest, I hear it's going to be a doozie.
Earlier rumors of a miniature submarine in Kasoag Lake seem to have been confirmed today when local resident Castor Kasoag posted a picture of what appears to be the sail of a submarine locked in the ice of Second Lake. When asked about the photograph a spokesperson for the Pentagon declined to comment stated that at this point any conclusions would be premature.
Guess the date and time the submarine is free of ice and win the 50/50. The cost of the tickets are $5.00 each. To purchase tickets contact one of KLCA's Officers or Board Members. There is still time left to buy your tickets. They must be postmarked March 15, 2018 or given to one of the officers listed below by March 15th. Tickets can be mailed to KLCA, P.O. Box 346, Altmar, NY 13302-0346

Weed Mats/Permit - Update
One of our Members was in the process of applying for a permit for a weed mat and was told by the NYS DEC they have decided to hold off on permits this year although next year permits will be required. It has been suggested that checking with the DEC and applying for your permits during the Fall of 2016 or early Winter of 2017.
